The OGF has a great many aids to locating and researching church records, which is a tremendous help in genealogy. And the various publications have also been a tremendous help, for which I am very grateful.
But I have also found great help in reconstructing my family history and obtaining information about their lives from the several Ortsbooks and local histories I have found of the towns and parishes in which they lived.
Is there a comprehensive list of such books which I might consult?
I think the preparation of such a list and the inclusion of it on the OGF website might be a great project for the society.
